Kay's Marvellous Medicine

Kay's marvellous medicine by Adam Kay

Product details

Product code:

The olden days were pretty fun if you liked wearing chainmail or chopping people's heads off but there was one tiny little problem back then... doctors didn't have the slightest clue about how our bodies worked.

It's time to find out why Ancient Egyptians thought the brain was just a useless load of old stuffing that might as well be chucked in the bin, why teachers forced their pupils to smoke cigarettes, why hairdressers would cut off their customers' legs, and why people used to get paid for farting.

If you're sure you're ready, then pop a peg on your nose, pull on your wellies, wash your hands and explore this gross and gruesome history of the human body!

This book is part of our STEM collection - a range of books and activities to encourage children into science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
